The Nigerian Navy (NN) on Tuesday said it had destroyed more illegal refineries in Delta and Akwa Ibom.
This is contained in a statement signed by its Director of Information, Naval Headquarters, Commodore Christian Ezekobe, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.
According to the statement, NN has continued its crackdown on the activities of illegal crude oil thieves and pipeline vandals.

“On Aug. 10, a Patrol Team deployed by NNS Jubilee raided an illegal refinery site at Ikoh Imoh community in Akwa Ibom.

“During the operation, the Patrol Team destroyed a Cotonou boat Laden with suspected stolen crude oil; 103 drums of illegally refined Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) and two motorcycles,’’ it said.

It also said that on Aug. 12, at about 6. 30 a.m., a Patrol Team deployed by NNS Delta raided several illegal refinery sites along Jones creek in Delta.

The statement said that during the raid, the Patrol Team destroyed unquantifiable amount of stolen crude oil and illegally refined AGO.

Similarly, the Service has also arrested a Marine vessel, MV Star Shrimper in Akwa Ibom, it said.
“The vessel was alleged to have tried to evade interrogation when intercepted by the NN vessel, with an unclear reason for its action.

“The vessel and its crew are being investigated by the Nigerian Navy personnel,’’ the statement said.

It added that the NN had reaffirmed its resolve to eliminate all forms of economic sabotage and criminal activities in the maritime areas.(NAN)
